Leaving school and heading off to uni is an incredibly exciting time. The world of academia opens up before you and for many students life at uni provides a first taste of independent living. But as the final year of your degree course approaches, suddenly the prospect of finding a job at the end of your uni life begins to become distinctly real.

At Collegiate we’ve thought about your employment prospects from the outset. It’s why we build fantastic features like individual desk areas, reading rooms, workrooms and seminar rooms into our student accommodation. We design your home to maximize opportunities for peaceful study, as well as to provide easy and convenient access to your university, giving you everything you need to stay ahead of the competition and burst forth into the world of work with every chance of success.

Interestingly, new figures from the Higher Education Statistics Agency have shown that employment prospects are often linked to universities with a strong specialism or with industry connections. The Telegraph has ranked them to produce the top ten unis for gaining work or starting further study within six months of graduating (based on graduates from 2013/14) – and the figures go to show that we’ve been spot on with the locations of our student accommodation!

Both London and Derby feature in the top ten. Collegiate’s student accommodation in London includes three premium properties, while our brand new student accommodation in DerbyRoman House – has been launched ready for September 2016.

We’re also ahead of the game when it comes to setting up in other cities in the top ten. Bournemouth was the top location for employment prospects according to the Telegraph and Aberdeen managed to get two places in the top ten. Both cities should see luxurious student accommodation from Collegiate arriving in the not-too-distant future.

If your city hasn’t made it into the top ten, then don’t panic! By living in a Collegiate home, you have superior facilities at your disposal to maximize your chances of succeeding in your degree and gaining employment after graduation. So relax, enjoy your university days to the max and enter the world of work with full confidence.
